It is light, it rides like so, but it feels like a heavier aluminum bike as far as being rigid. The gearing and the suspension are really unsurpassed as far as comfort goes. We ride heavy mountain trails and rough terrain.

2 wheels, a seat, handle bars, pedals and a frame..

I used to ride a lot then I had kids. Now I will ride again once my son is ready to cruse with me.

I don't BMX anymore, but I have an origonal GT from the late '70's. I forgot the specs, but it's an origonal GT Freestyle. (I even have the origional tires with GT engraved in the treads)

My MT bike is a **** framed Shwinn (yeah this was a bad idea, but the frame was cheap)
Shimano Rapidfire shifters (I think thats the name...)
... crud. I can't think of the specs

It's a duel suspension frame with double walled rims, Shimanio everything... and decent front suspension. (I built it from scratch out of parts I had lieing around and ended up making a good bike... aside from the new (when Pacific bought out Shwinn) frame that you can find at walmart and the weld looks like if you take it off of a drop more then 4 or 5 feet, it will snap)


I wish I had a closer pic to show you that all the parts are my own aside from the frame, handlebars, seat and rear suspension fork.

Not bad for a "parts I had lieing around bike" eh?

The kickstand was taken off after I took the pretty pic... After an accident I had when I was 15 with a kickstand, I will never have one on any of my bikes ever again.

It flopped down when I landed after about a 3 foot of air jump off of a ridge onto a lower area in the backwoods and the kickstand went down and got stuck on a rock, sending me head over heals down a steep inclined hill that would have had me rolling about 90 feet down the hill over rocks and into trees and branches... luckly I grabbed a tree on the way down and only suffered a dislocated wrist.

I ride quite abit around here but I only have a Trek 4500. The trails don't really require anything more then that.. I mean Im sure it would be alot nicer ride with some tricked out bike, but I don't have the money and I don't do it enough.
